Synopsis

‘Between Home: Odyssey of an unusual sea bandit’ is a high spirited, poetic adventure documentary that chronicles a young person’s rites of passage from novice sailor to expert in three years of life aged in salt, sun and wind. Between 2006 and 2010, Australian Nick Jaffe voyaged across two oceans and a continent, from Europe to Australia. Artist and amateur sailor, Nick Jaffe, has been living in Berlin and has decided to take the long way home to Australia. Some call it brave, others think it’s crazy, but Nick decides to sail solo from the UK to Australia, negotiating the treacherous waters of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The camera onboard his boat is often Nick’s only companion on a trip that ends up taking over two years. It captures his reflective musings, his joyful excitement and his isolated struggles in this unique adventure documentary.
